    Hellbound: Hellraiser II

    ★★★½

    Silly sweet sad and occasionally properly obscene. Definitely a more pleasurable and surprising form of grotesque, symbol rich, story chaos than the more portentous offerings from leos carax or Julia ducournau.

    If 2001 is about how nothing can sometimes give rise to something, On A Silver Globe reminds us that something will always revert to nothing in the end.

    In their referential / reverential nerdiness / neediness and consequent inability to alight on anything original, the Safdies have more in common with George lucas than they do with the other late 70s directors they attempt to ape.

    Feels like both the film and the coronavirus tap in to a desperate desire to get away from each other as we become more interconnected. Retreat is relief.
